    Am I the only one who finds WP email as tedious? Rather than click on tab that says all. We have to run down the list checking off each mail singular. Its crazy

    It can be pretty darn friggin tedious if you want to delete a bunch of emails, so I 100% agree with the OP. It makes it worse if you originally came from BlackBerry where you could delete emails with a "Delete Prior" option which would delete all your emails from a certain date backwards.

    However, OP, Microsoft is redoing Outlook with Windows 10, so hopefully they will at least add a "select all" option. The upcoming Outlook looks fantastic, and I believe it will be the same thing that was just released for iOS and Android (correct my if I'm wrong)

    Check them off to do what? Delete them maybe?
    I just long-hold any I don't want. Or wait until Outlook Rules kick in on another device and deal with them. Or unsubscribe from anyone/thing that's sending me too many mails.

    For me, mark as read. I have virtually no filters on, so I manage my email myself. ajst222, are you a Q10 double typing casualty too?

    No, I came from the Z10. The battery life was just appalling, and I was overall disappointed with the way the OS and ecosystem developed.



    And yes, good point. I also miss the "Mark Prior Read" as well

    I'm just saying if I get 50 emails each one has to be check to delete. To me that antiquated. Wouldn't it be easier to have a delete all option?. So I was asking is there a way if doing that?

    I agree I do not entirely understand the argument you're trying to put forward. On my email I can select multiple emails by activating the checkboxes on the left side of the screen in outlook in windows phone 8.1. After checking a bunch of emails I can press delete in the app bar. Hey, presto, gone.

    I can confirm there is not a select all button, but I would aruge to add that to the uservoice as a missing feature. Though honestly I don't know many people who would want to delete all their email at once, but that's just me.

    What worries me with the aquisitoin of sunrise is that deleting emails does look like a more laborious task at first hand. You can swipe delete one email at a time. But if you want to delete a large group will that also be possible. Becuase deleting 100 emails (as an expample) one at a time sounds less effective that preselecting 100 emails and pressing delete one time.

    I keep all emails in my inbox and don't delete any. Having the check boxes would be fine if I had the option to mark (all checked) as read.

    Outlook has that feature.

    Add me to the list of people who think it's ridiculous that such a common function is not available. Every program, everywhere, ought to have a 'Select All' option. Suppose you want to throw 45 mails away and only want to keep 5..... Then Select All and manually unselect the 5 you'd want to keep would be more convenient than having to select 45 unwanted mails. Pfff, man............
